Well said Michael, we are both artists and scientists and those disciplines melded together make us aquarists!

I went to the art institute of Pgh and have a degree in commercial art. I definitely tap into that part of my being when I work in my tank. It is what drove me to want colorful fish. It also played into why I chose a tiered aquascape that had focal points at the third points of the tank. (If you took a FTS and then drew lines so the tank was divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically...where those lines intersected is where I strive to make focal points). Its a composition principal in art.

Then there is the science and biological aspect that we discuss regularly. So I guess you could say that keeping a reef exercises both sides of our brain! LOL

O yeah, almost forgot but your pics are beautiful. I love how the seagrass is maturing and becoming more dominant in the 'living' art you call an aquarium.

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, ...and God sawthat it was good. Genesis 1:20 - 21

Current Tank Info: A 56 gallon high nutrient macro algae/coral reef that overflows into a basement 30 gallon seahorse macro algae fuge that overflows into a 20 gallon sump
